Today my GP authorised a consecutive HbA1c test, 3 months after the last test where my result dropped clear of the Prediabetes range. Previously this had been blocked by the receptionists so I had to make an appointment with my GP to authorise it as well as discussing other matters. So I now have a booking for next week. It will be interesting to see if the 36 from last time is repeated, bettered or otherwise. We touched on the practicality of my diet and he, whilst endorsing lchf, did point out that a relaxed approach should or can be applied when on holiday, special occasions thus endorsing the idea that it does no long term harm if occasional. He also authorised / suggested a step down plan on my blood pressure medication starting with a further immediate reduction from 3 x 4mg doxazosin to 2 x 4mg per day.
